How an FBI official with a political agenda
corrupted both Mueller, Comey investigations

Fox News, by Gregg Jarrett

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 12/7/2017 4:59:37 AM

How is it possible that Hillary Clinton escaped criminal indictment for mishandling classified documents despite incriminating evidence that she violated the Espionage Act? Why did Donald Trump become the target of a criminal investigation for allegedly conspiring with Russia to influence the presidential election despite no evidence that he ever did so? The answer, it seems, comes down to one person who played a vital role in both cases: Peter Strzok, deputy director of counterintelligence at the FBI. Strzok was exchanging politically charged texts with an FBI lawyer that denigrated Trump and lauded Clinton at the same time he was

It´s more like Mueller and Comey were already corrupt and Strzok just assisted them.

You can´t corrupt something or someone that is already corrupt.

Might be a willing scapegoat, but the corruption is pervasive.

Any attempt to make Strzok the scapegoat here would be most odd indeed, as the obvious outcome would be letting Mueller, Comey, Lynch, Clinton, and of course BarackHussein off the hook.

Now... why would anyone want to do that?

Comey and Mueller are caught red-handed not notifying Congress of a compromised investigation. They failed to cover themselves and even now they are not getting out in front.
Time to admit this and a new FBI created that does´t operate as some secret police in the nature of the Hitler´s National Socialist Party.

Yes, “grossly negligent” becomes “extremely careless”. A criminal investigation becomes a "matter".

"It depends upon what the meaning of the word ´is´ is".

Leftists are masters of twisting language.

NO REPLACEMENT for Mueller. He and his stooges should be dismissed with prejudice. The investigation should immediately STOP. There should be a SMALL panel of approved people to review the existing "evidence" and determine, after a year of looking, if there is anything worthwhile pursuing. They may NOT investigate further, simply review and recommend.

They must NOT be fishing for Leftist delusions or "lying to investigators about legal matters" silliness.

They should be determining if there is a real CRIMINAL case pursuant specifically to RUSSIANS and TRUMP working ILLEGALLY to influence the ELECTION.

This does NOT include meetings with Russians at conferences or as part of your job as a Senator or as part of a business opportunity 10 years ago. It doesn´t include discussions such as "It would be nice to work together to solve the ISIS problem.". It does not include the typical counterintelligence speculation that accepted Hillary´s absurd Dossier as possible. Nor does it include a specious "obstruction of justice" fantasy.

There should be a laser focus on the issue originally concerned about as a CRIMINAL matter. There should also be a HARD timeline, perhaps 2 months, to present their decision.

We already KNOW that there is nothing there. This would simply be finalizing it.

Strozk is just the guy that was stupid enough to be so obvious that it couldn´t be hidden any longer, even by the complicit republican members of The Swamp. The entire leadership of the FBI is just as corrupt. They all need to go, some to jail.

Inside any organization, especially one that operates in secrets, there develops a whole gaggle of cliques- departments, sub-departments, investigative groups, special investigators, closed door clatches that supposedly are performing ´special´ inquiries and studies, etc. Inevitably, these groups develops unique trusts between members and then they develop special goals and become entirely refocused on particular agendas within the department. Team mebers go to luncheons together, order in pizza, have late night sessions and soon, they become a force unto themselves, their original mission is forgotten. A great example of this is the TV series, "The shield". A "Special Task Force" was developed headed by a dirty, brutal cop named Mackey. He hand picked his team, and they operated in a very unique manner, using techniques that were illegal and even criminal. When the system got in the way slowing down regular police work, the Chief would reluctantly call in Mackey and his boys- they would violate every constitutional practice in the book- but they got results almost instantly. No one would ever ask the right questions to shut them down and if they did, one of Mackey´s boys would give them a little "midnight tune up"

This is actually the way the real world works- at least part of it- and always has. In the case of the FBI- it has taken over the entire establishment, due to a corrupt Obama Administration that universally despised the slow grinding process of democratic laws, rules and decency.

There´s a good reason Strzok was so brazen. Had he been a rogue partisan he would have been more careful. Clearly he was comfortable in his surroundings because his surroundings were a great fit, people just like him. The whole socialist elite class including Hillary herself were so confident that Hillary would win they didn´t take the rational precautions that would have come with any doubt.

Things are indeed unraveling. If we want to get answers, seems the DOJ has the power to release all the requested documents by the oversight committees now. The chairmen all have the highest security classifications, so they are cleared to see any of them.

Why are they being stonewalled? Could it be feet dragging to hopefully have a different Senate in charge? Maybe.. but if Sessions can´t see his way clear of this, who can demand it? Seems all the cards are still stacked against the truth coming out!

All this corruption, destruction of subpoenaed emails and documents, illegal servers, rigged primary election, illegal domestic spying, fake dossier, numerous violations of the Constitution and not one person has been charged. What do all these perps involved have in common? They´re all Democrats who supported, protected, covered up and lied for obama and Hillary. What will happen to them? My guess is not enough to make us here happy. If there are any consequences at all they won´t be enough to keep these partisan Democrat hacks from worming their way back in positions of power in the Federal government!

WRONG!! Don´t believe for one minute that this Strzok character was the rogue villain who orchestrated this complex nefarious scheme all by himself. This plot began at 2.31 am on Nov 9 2016 from the highest echelons of then US Government. Strzok might be made a scapegoat or fall guy but the real evil is lurking way at the top.

Gregg Jarrett missed the boat on this one.

If Strzok was not on the same path and of like mind as Mueller, Comey, McCabe, etc they would have dispatched him to North Dakota many moons ago.

Truly birds of a feather flock together.

Strzok was just a follower and not a leader so do not think he just corrupted the others.

So this worm just happened to wheedle his slimy self into every little nook and cranny of the FBI so he could do his dirty stuff, huh? Not quite. Don´t believe that for a second. No, he was just one of the Dirty Dozen working to destroy Trump --- and a minor character at that --- so he´s now as expendable as Trini Lopez was in the original movie because he´s not the big name star.

Mueller threw this guy off the stagecoach because he can hear the wolves getting closer and he needed to lighten the load to move faster. Strzok (Russian name??)did what he was told.

Why are we finding out in December what happened in August? So Mueller could pull off more dirty tricks before Congress got wind. And where is Congress --- oh btw???

Do you really need this ridiculous explanation of "how" some relative flack corrupted an investigation? Did you really NOT think Comey was corrupt in July, 2016 after his speech? With all the KNOWN history of EVERY person on this Mueller team SINCE IT STARTED, has Gregg Jarrett offered anything we didn´t already know just because Strzok was caught texting his mistress?

What in the living Billy S***ing Hell do you think it takes to stop the fantasyland dossier investigation and start to investigate the woman who traded 20 percent of OUR uranium reserves for personal cash and ON PURPOSE, had our most sensitive information available 24/7/365 for four years?

I don´t care what you´re getting but I´m real tired of all this stupid ass intrigue as if we´re "getting" to the bottom of something. The bottom cannot be more clear and has been wide open for viewing for over a year now with GOP leaders and the "outstanding, honest, full of integrity" attorney general acting like this is all new information. Does that not PROVE that they too are just as involved in impeaching Trump as the entertainment-education-media complex, Marxists and deep state?

I´m all stocked up on pillows, gold, mattresses, safes, and simple home security systems. I don´t need to hear the SAME damn story for over a year to know this federal government leadership is using MY tax money to illegally impeach a duly elected president. Is there ANY elected politician other than Trump himself who WILL stop this utter nonsense?

I love Gregg Garrett, but I laughed out loud at his suggestion that Comey,et.al, need to be put under oath to get to the bottom of all of this. Under oath? Didn´t Comey already lie under oath to the Congress? And he just got a what $10 million book deal? These people would lie to their mothers under oath. And they will continue to lie under oath or not about this case. The deep state is too important to be tampered with.

Perjury doesn´t exist if you are a Democrat. Well with one exception, the poor, hapless Martha Stewart.

Media’s Unhinged Attacks on

National Review Online, by Conrad Black    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 12/14/2017 5:05:42     Post Reply
In this season of frenzied liberal assault on the incumbent president and the almost uniform view of the long-standing bipartisan political elite of the United States that President Trump is a maniac, any falsehood about him or act of obstruction is justified in damaging his presidency, impairing his ability to govern, and bringing forward the swiftest possible return of the status quo ante-Trump. It is now routine for the principal outlets of media mythmaking to invoke the legacy of Richard Nixon confected by his accusers of long ago. The particular myth that has for several years been the preferred falsehood

There is a profound difference between (i) the soap-opera charges now being leveled by some opportunistic women against President Donald Trump and leveraged for cheap political gain by the Gillibrand Hypocrites within the Democrat Party and (ii) the pants-dropping of The Icon, John Conyers, and the butt-squeezing, tongue-slithering obscenities of Sen. Al Franken (who now indeed will have to leave the upper chamber, with no Roy Moore to counterbalance). Conyers and Franken have lost all legitimacy. By contrast, the American people elected President Trump with full transparent cognition of his public and private portfolio, thereby validating his office. 1. Personal Character

There was plenty of blame to go around as the Republican Party attempted to reconcile Tuesday’s painful election loss in deeply conservative Alabama, but most of the finger-pointing was directed at former White House chief political strategist Steve Bannon. Rep. Peter T. King of New York called on fellow Republicans to dump him. Former White House press secretary Anthony Scaramucci told Bloomberg TV that Mr. Bannon “has to be defeated by the Republican Party and frankly [he] has to be defeated by America.” A close ideological ally of President Trump, Mr. Bannon is leading a populist insurgency against the party’s Washington establishment

There was a rush to judgment last week on Peter Strzok, a top FBI counterintelligence agent and one of the lead agents on the Hillary Clinton emails investigation, after revelations that Strzok exchanged text messages during the 2016 campaign with an FBI lawyer that were pro-Clinton and anti-Trump. The lawyer was Lisa Page, with whom he was having an extramarital affair. Like Strzok, Page worked on both the Clinton probe and on special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of possible Trump campaign collusion with Russia. In light of the obvious appearance of bias, Mueller rightly removed Strzok from the Trump-Russia case. (Page had

Democratic leaders aren’t going to shut down the government to save Dreamers in December. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi haven’t stopped fighting to deliver something on immigration by the end of the month. But they’ve subtly shifted their rhetoric in recent days and aren’t insisting that deportation relief be paired with a government funding bill this year. Top Democrats’ retreat from demands on a deal before 2018 ensures they won’t get blamed for a possible shutdown and won’t upend Senate talks on a bipartisan deal combining relief for Dreamers with border security. Those negotiations appear

Political elites on both sides of the Atlantic are still frothing over President Donald Trump’s retweeting of three videos recording Muslims acting badly.

In Texts, F.B.I. Officials in Russia Inquiry

WASHINGTON — Senior F.B.I. officials who helped investigate Donald J. Trump’s presidential campaign last year wrote in text messages that Hillary Clinton “just has to win” and described a potential Trump victory as “terrifying,” according to texts released Tuesday night. A top counterintelligence agent, Peter Strzok, exchanged the messages with Lisa Page, a senior F.B.I. lawyer. Some messages criticized Mrs. Clinton’s team, the Obama administration, Congress and other Democrats. But the two appeared appalled at some of Mr. Trump’s comments during the campaign and feared that he would politicize the F.B.I. For example, after Mr. Trump made an apparent sexual allusion related

On Tuesday, Democrat Doug Jones pulled off a stunning victory over Republican Roy Moore in Alabama. The race went down to the wire, but the Democrat prevailed. Here are five things to know about why Jones won, why Moore lost, and what it means for the future of the U.S. Senate and both parties. 1. Character matters.

Whistleblower Says CFPB Falsified

A former employee of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is calling for an investigation after accusing managers of falsifying documents to impose fines on a payday lender. Cassandra Jackson, a former CFPB examiner in the southeast division, sent a letter last week to Attorney General Jeff Sessions also accusing managers of "widespread racism and gender discrimination." Jackson said her superiors at the CFPB asked her to falsify documents during her investigation into a Texas-based payday lending company, Ace Cash Express. "During the course of this examination, I was asked to change, remove, and otherwise falsify documents connected with this examination," Jackson said. Jackson said

Bannon´s ´kingmaker´ status

"There´s a special place in hell for Republicans who should know better,” former senior White House adviser Steve Bannon said on the eve of Alabama´s U.S. Senate election, as he went all-in for embattled Republican candidate Roy Moore. The next day, voting results showed Democrat Doug Jones to be the victor in the deep-red state, making him the first non-Republican to win a U.S. Senate seat there in more than two decades -- although Moore has not conceded. If Jones´ victory stands, it would tarnish the supposed “kingmaker” status Bannon enjoyed since Moore triumphed in the Republican primary over an establishment-backed candidate.

"Mr. Trump continues to exhibit paranoia about American intelligence agencies," wrote the NeverTrump conservative Max Boot in the New York Times a week or so before the president took office. "Consumed by his paranoia about the deep state, Donald Trump has disappeared into the fog of his own conspiracy theories," declared the Times´ Maureen Dowd. "Paranoia seizes Trump´s White House," reported Politico, noting the suspicion that "career intelligence operatives are working to undermine the new president." Actually, they were.

One Mueller-Investigation Coincidence Too Many

Special prosecutors, investigators, and counsels are usually a bad idea. They are admissions that constitutionally mandated institutions don’t work — and can be rescued only by supposed superhuman moralists, who are without the innate biases inherent in human nature. The record from Lawrence Walsh to Ken Starr to Patrick Fitzgerald suggests otherwise. Originally narrow mandates inevitably expand — on the cynical theory that everyone has something embarrassing to hide. Promised “short” timelines and limited budgets are quickly forgotten. Prosecutors search for ever new crimes to justify the expense and public expectations of the special-counsel appointment. Soon the investigators need to

Brzezinski said, “I just want to say something, beyond the fact that it is reprehensible that the president of the United States would say something so derogatory and disgusting about a woman, we’re not surprised, Mr. President. You do it all the time. You treat women terribly, and you treat the women around

Franken announced last Thursday that he would be resigning “in the coming weeks” after eight different women accused him of groping or forcibly kissing them. “The timing of Franken’s resignation remains unclear, as is his motive in delaying it,” New York Magazine’s Ed Kilgore noted at the time. Franken has yet to offer any more specificity about when he’s going to follow through in resigning. Franken’s office did not return multiple requests for comment on the subject. Franken begrudgingly offered his resignation after 35 Democratic senators called on him to do so, three weeks after he was first accused

President Trump attacked Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) in a sexually suggestive tweet Tuesday morning that implied Gillibrand would do just about anything for money, prompting a swift and immediate backlash. “Lightweight Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a total flunky for Charles E. Schumer and someone who would come to my office ´begging´ for campaign contributions not so long ago (and would do anything for them), is now in the ring fighting against Trump,” the president wrote. “Very disloyal to Bill & Crooked-USED!”

Margaret Thatcher was born one. So were predecessor Prime Ministers Benjamin Disraeli and William E. Gladstone. Diana, the princess of Wales, too. Also William Pitt, who presided over the British victory in the French and Indian War and lent his name to Pittsburgh. And, according to some university authorities four decades ago, me as well. We were all born commoners. But — despite what newspapers, websites and television stations on both sides of the Atlantic have reported with wonder and wild-eyed delight — Meghan Markle, the actor who is to marry Prince Harry, is not a commoner. She’s an American, and

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) faced criticism for saying that President Donald Trump “slut-shamed” Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) with a non-sexual insult, Tuesday. After President Donald Trump made a post on Twitter claiming that Sen. Gillibrand “would do anything” for campaign contributions, Sen. Warren made her own post accusing Trump of “slut-shaming.” “Are you really trying to bully, intimidate and slut-shame @SenGillibrand?” asked Sen. Warren in her post. “Do you know who you’re picking a fight with? Good luck with that, @realDonaldTrump. Nevertheless, #shepersisted.” Are you really trying to bully, intimidate and slut-shame @SenGillibrand? Do you know who you´re picking a fight with? Good

MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski is still fired up about President Trump’s tweet mocking Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand and took her frustrations out on first lady Melania Trump and first daughter Ivanka Trump. “[Trump] should have apologized for being a sexist pig,” Brzezinski said. “And the women around him, his wife, who has a platform against cyber bullying, that’s a joke. That’s the saddest thing I’ve ever seen.” Brzezinski then shifted her attention to Ivanka Trump, “Who came to Washington… to develop a platform for women,” but has stood by her father. “Go home. You’re doing nothing if you stand

Alabama is one of the most reliably Republican states in the country. The last time a Democrat was elected was in 1992, and no Democrat has won more than 40 percent of the vote in a Senate race there since 1996. The closest election in recent memory was in 2002, when Jeff Sessions won re-election by a razor-thin margin of 19 points. Sen. Richard Shelby has won his last three elections by 35 points, 30 points and 28 points, respectively. So it takes a special kind of stupid to pick a candidate who can lose to a Democrat in Alabama.

The Alabama Supreme Court has reportedly stayed a lower court’s order to election officials that would have required the preservation of voting records in Tuesday’s Senate special election. A circuit judge on Monday ordered election officials to set voting machines to save all digital ballot images, which would preserve voting records in the event of a recount. Alabama´s AL.com said Tuesday morning that the state´s Supreme Court had blocked the order.

From America’s Catholic bishops to prominent Christian pastor Jim Wallis, congressional Republicans’ push for an overhaul of the tax code has been called nothing less than ungodly. The debate about tax rates and income numbers has taken on pointedly religious overtones, with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, California Democrat, citing Pope Francis and St. Augustine in attacking the bill and saying it would signify Armageddon. Mr. Wallis led a protest against the tax plan at the Hart Senate Office Building, reading Bible verses before he was escorted away by Capitol Police. The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops released a lengthy
